"40-year-old Cabernet Franc vines on limestone and chalk. 24 months in 500-litre oak barrels.
Classic Saumur-Champigny nose. This is textbook stuff! Minty fresh, brambly red fruit, salvia leaf and a touch of wet metal. Beautiful structure: slender, whip-lash and iron lace, dry enough to inch you forward into the fruit; dry enough to make you thirsty, but not tired. Absolutely nails Old World elegance."
